Question: Do DVD recorders also have region code lock, like DVD players?

Answer: DVDs that you make yourself are not region encoded, however, DVD recorders are region specific with regards to playback of commercially made DVDs. On the positive side of things -- DVD recorders do not place a zone restriction on DVDs they record as that is strictly a commercial DVD function.
